AirPal Patient Transfer System

AirPal’s Transfer pad was the first and remains the leading product for innovation in keeping patients and caregivers safe for well over three decades with their air-assisted lateral patient transfer system. Their range of widths sizes is the broadest on the market and they boast the highest possible quality control of their transport system, offering the first five-year warranty in the industry.

The AirPal air-assisted lateral transfer pad is attached by a hose to the air supply that inflates the pad, comfortably cradling the patient, while constantly forcing air to the bottom, which is designed with many small air hole perforations. Once fully inflated, the air released through the holes, creating a cushion of air (similar to that of an air hockey table), that reduces the sheer force required to start moving a patient from one position to another. This greatly reduces the effort by up to 90% and overcomes the problem of the repetitive strain that a caregiver faces when moving multiple patients during the day. They can effortlessly move the patients with only one or two staff personnel, where normally it would take 4 to sometimes 8 to complete the transfer.


They are more transparent than the patient when it comes to being radiolucent. As no material is completely radiotransparent outside of a perfect vacuum, the TransferPad can continue to provide comfort without pulling or lifting a patient who is seriously injured, or physically dependent in some way while being x-rayed, is a tremendous benefit to both the patient and the technician. Any ghosting that might occur can be attenuated by a skilled technician, but the patient being able to remain on the transfer pad outweighs the risk of the x-ray still containing that artifact on the exposure plate.

SPH Medical is the national distribution partner for AirPal and has over 15 years of experience implementing Safe Patient Handling programs that include AirPal across the country, reducing risk of injury to cargivers, and improving patient outcomes. SPH Medical offers the complete range of AirPal solutions including durable and single patient use (SPS) solutions coupled with our local onsite education to ensure the success of each hospital program.
